Hello IACS Grads, Parents and folks who care about them!
We hope you are all safe and well at this time. With all of the news alerts and COVID-19 updates, we wanted to provide you with some positive alumni stories.
While at home, if you’d like to reach out to share updates about your adventures, experiences and what you’ve been up to since graduating IACS, we’d love to hear from you! Let us know about your accomplishments or a change in email address so that we can congratulate you and share your good news. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Sebastian Chavez (Class of 2019)
Through the "Dialogue of Civilizations," students are encouraged to apply to one of several faculty-led excursions all around the world, where they will study different concepts from the classroom in areas where they are most prevalent– much like an elongated, educational Endersession that we get 2 classes worth of credits for! Although the application process was lengthy and the various programs were competitive, I’m extremely proud to have been accepted to a trip to Germany/Poland to study the Holocaust and other genocides. My particular program was scheduled to take place from May 17th – June 17th, and led by professor of political science Natalie Bormann. Our trip was scheduled to take us all around these two countries via train, but notably to Munich, Oswiecim (the town Auschwitz is located in), Nuremburg, and Berlin. Being the only student on the trip with a background in both Political Science and Computer Engineering, one of the more specific roles requested of me by Professor Bormann would require me to analyze the organized and systematic nature of the Holocaust, taking into account the many quantitative factors that were at play during the genocide.
Johnny Passarelli (Class of 2019)
Johnny Passarelli (3rd from left in photograph) joined the U.S. Navy, where he has already traveled to Chicago, Missouri and Texas. Recently a graduate from A school to become a corpsman medic, he will continue his special warfare training for the next three years at Camp Pendleton in San Diego.
Johnny encourages everyone to find their creed, whatever it may be. It should be something that is set in stone, that no one can change. Ultimately, he encourages everyone to, no matter what, always work hard and do it to their best ability.
